The hunt for British Big Cats attracts far more newspaper column-inches than any other cryptozoological subject. There are so many of them now that we feel that they should be archived by us in some way, so we should have a go at publishing a regular round-up of the stories as they come in.

NEWSLINK: "Big Cat hunting decision irreversible" – Jean Kapata
Tourism and Arts Minister Jean Kapata has charged that Zambia will not bow down to pressure and reverse the decision to allow hunting of Big Cats. Mrs Kapata said threats by international charity Lions Aid to report Zambia to the EU and the US for a possible ban of its tourism products are nonsensical. She said Zambia is a sovereign state that will make its own decisions in the best interest of its people. Mrs Kapata said the decision is final and no amount of pressure from anyone will force the PF government to change its stance on the matter.
